Made reservation for my wife's birthday (special occasion they were notified). Very cramped sitting at the grill table, no room to put the food and drinks. Very greasy food, too much oil. At the end of service, no birthday mention to my wife. Long wait for drink orders. We have been there several times before and this was the worst ever. Never going back there again.

The place looks like it needs to be updated, the food was ok, The fried rice was a little salty and the steak was over cooked. I wanted medium, I got medium well to well done. The chef cooking in front of you is great, I guess that is what you pay for.

The mojito was delicious! Highly recommend it. I would be willing to give this place another try.

I have always enjoyed Benihana. Our chef was very engaging and entertaining. Flavor was good. Steak done medium but was chewy. A Lobster order came out before cooking was lobster meat pieces put in a lobster tail shell. Sea food over cooked. Sushi was very good!

Celebrating a birthday. Gave the waitress the $30.00 off coupon and when the bill came she had neglected to remove the $30.00. When brought to her attention she corrected the bill.
Gave the birthday ice cream but did not take the birthday picture. Being going there for many years and have seen a drastic price increase for their entire menu.
Not pleased with them at all.

I had a great time at the restaurant! The food was great and delicious and my non-alcoholic beverage was excellent for the price and glass! I love to eat at seafood every chance I get! It is a wonderful experience and place to be at thru-out the year! Thanks for my excellent food and will be back with guests. I went on Thursday 26th at 3:30 p.m. I had a lot of fun with the chef preparing my food and the guest at the table.

Three of us had a good meal. We’ve been here many times and the food is consistently good. Going to Benihana with 8 friends probably makes it more enjoyable so that you’re not dining with random folks. Service was improved since our last visit.

We attended Benihana on Monday with my parents and boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. It was a very cozy restaurant and very clean. We enjoyed our food and the cook's entertainment a lot! There were two couples with us at the table (everyone kind of kept to themselves which was nice), but one of the couples was really rude to the cook and asked for a ton of extra stuff without leaving a tip. It would have been better if they were not there! I did not think Benihana was a couples date place. It seems better for groups.
But overall the experience was very pleasant. Like I said, our food was delicious and perfectly cooked! Service was off a little bit. The waiter who was collecting dishes took our order at the beginning and he wrote down my mother's fried rice but then made a face at her when she asked for it after being served plain steamed rice. They also never asked us if we wanted our green tea that comes as a part of our meal. We asked for it at the end of the meal, so I guess they had to wait longer for us to be finished with our meal because they hadn't offered it earlier like they were supposed to.

Not the greatest of experiences for our family. Nothing was explained in advance, food was confusing to us,since some items were not ordered but given complimentary. Some ordered food never arrived, which left the kids hungry and disappointed. The chef was hard to understand; his tricks were neat, though. The service was started by a bus-person, later switching to a waitress, neither introducing themselves. The beer was served in a bottle without a glass being offered. The bathrooms had a bad odor. Sorry, Benihana has lost its flair to us and is not worth the drive.

We went here on New Years Eve with the kids as we have been to the Lombard location several times and loved it, but they were booked solid. While the food was good we were so rushed it was completely disappointing. The server forgot my chicken in my steak/chicken combo order and it was delivered after everything was already done. He forgot the fried rice the other diners at our table ordered as well. The entire dinner show was rushed and was gone through so fast it was not enjoyable. Once our server took our order I hardly saw him. The food was good - the saving grace of the night, but we expected better treatment for a NYE dinner and spending $200 on dinner. Will not go back to this location again and would not recommend it. I wanted to complain to the manager that night, but he was busy with another complaint from another diner and I didn't want to wait - I relayed our disappointment to the hostess.

My group of 7 were seated realivally on time. The cook did a good job entertaining the kids and preparing the food. However, he forgot to cook the meat for one of my guests till almost after everyone was done. The waitress was nice and friendly but very slow and didn’t come around nearly enough.
